Chicken Cordon Bleu

This is a super easy recipe and very yummy!

4 Chicken Breasts
4 slices of deli ham
4 slices of Swiss Cheese
1 C. Seasoned Stuffing, crushed (you can also use seasoned bread crumbs, but I think stuffing is the best!)
Salt & Pepper
8-12 Toothpicks
1lb. asparagus (optional)
1 packet Hollandaise Sauce (optional)
Wax paper (optional)

Place wax paper over the top of your chicken. Use a meat mallet to pound out your chicken. If you don't have a mallet, you could also use the bottom of a cup or a rolling pin. The wax paper is optional, it just prevents the chicken from sticking to your pounding apparatus.
Season your chicken with the Salt and Pepper on both sides. Place your ham and cheese on one side of the chicken. Put the asparagus in the middle. Starting with the small end of the chicken, roll it tightly up. Use the toothpicks to keep it closed.
Place your crushed stuffing onto a plate and roll the chicken around in it so that it's completely coated. Place your chicken in a greased pan and cover. Cook for about 30 minutes at 400 degrees or until the chicken is cooked all the way through. Top with Hollandaise sauce, if wanted. I've tried making Hollandaise sauce from scratch, but I like it out of the packets so much more! Not to mention, it's way easier!
Makes 4 Servings.
